We recently saw an interview with the owner of the Breizh Cafe and decided we needed to try it. It is a small business restaurant whose owner makes speciality crepes from Brittany (France). As we entered we immediately got a table; we ordered "La Robiquette" (Sausage from Toulouse, Swiss cheese, tomatoes and caramelized onions) and "La Parisienne" (ham, Swiss cheese, béchamel sauce and sautéed mushrooms) - both were very good (rating 4/5). When the 2 plates came you couldn't know which one was which as both crepes looked identical. For dessert we decided to take 1 sweet flambé crepe called "l'Antillaise" (banana, chocolate, coconut, and rum) - it was also very good (rating 4/5).
Prices are affordable and fair. The only thing which we found average was the service.
Overall - Recommended as it offers interesting crepes.
We went to Grozepa for lunch as we had a Groupon voucher entitling us to 6 dishes for 2 persons. We had reserved online and had no issue getting a table. The restaurant is fairly new and the wood decor offered a warm feeling. We ordered the onion soup (very good), Caesar salad (average with too much sauce), the Newyorker pizza (good), standard poutine (was average), le gros cochon poutine (was ok) and the taco shrimps (very good). The service was friendly, fast and professional.
Overall: The only issue with Grozepa is that you do not feel that is a restaurant. It is more like a place where you listen to music (live or karaoke) with a glass of beer and have something to eat at 5$ or so.
We visited this restaurant since we a had bought a groupon (discount voucher). The location is actually very close to the Berry UQAM Metro station with a couple of minutes walk from it. We reserved a table prior to coming but there were not too many people. With our voucher we were entitled to either 2 appetizers or 1 dumpling to share and 2 main dishes. We had the chicken/shrimp dumplings (very good) and as main dishes : Taiwanese stir-fried shrimp noodles (good) and general Tao chicken (excellent). The service was great - always filling our glasses with water and asking if everything was to our expectation.
Overall recommended and not expensive.
We went on a Monday night and thought it wouldn't be full. When we arrived there was a line up but since we had reserved online in advance we got a table. We took as appetizers the grilled octopus (4*) and a garden salad (3*). As main dishes we had the mussels with blue cheese (4*) and the London fish and chips (5*). Both main dishes were very good but found the octopus appetizer to be a bit steep in terms of what is offered and price (15$). The service was a hit and miss : we were missing a knife and we only got it when i asked for it and the water glasses were only filled once.
Overall - an enjoyable and a popular place - be sure to go for the fish and chips (the portions are huge)
We were a party of 10+ and had reserved prior to coming. We got our table as expected which was good. I ordered a pork souvlaki and it comes with a small Greek salad. Unfortunately they no longer put tzatziki with the souvlaki (you have to ask for it) and the quality of the meat is not the same as it used to be. On the positive side the service was good.
Nostos used to be a great place but it seems it is in decline. I hope they will go back to what they used to be in terms of food.
Ô deux soeurs is a restaurant with bio dishes among them are salads, sandwiches, burgers, etc... we were a party of a dozen or so with a reservation. The service was very slow and there were about 2 or 3 other tables only. It took around 45 minutes to get our dishes. On my side, I took the Grilled Cheese de Ann Gourmet (which comes with fries on the side + 1 slice bacon and egg in the sandwich). It was enjoyable but a bit expensive (16$). Overall the food is not bad but the service needs a lot of improvement. I might give it another chance in the future.
We reserved through the online booking and were almost instantly given a table. We had a voucher for an appetizer, a main dish and a dessert. We ordered the poutine Italienne (4/5) and peperonata (4/5) for appetizers, for main dishes we took the vegetarian pizza and the saucisse maison pizza (both a 3/5 since the crust was not good and was very hard to cut) and desserts (4/5 for both).
The service was a hit and miss (example: we were given bread/butter but no cutlery, twice the waitress came with the wrong dishes to our table, etc...) but prices with voucher were great.
We were a big group of around 70 people for a Christmas lunch. We had the 26$ formula that included soup or salad + 1 choice of 5 dishes and coffee (tips/taxes included). More details to follow...
Once again we had a Groupon voucher for 2 people (100$ for 46$) which entitles you for an entrée, a main dish and a dessert. We had reserved so we were instantly seated. The staff was courteous, smiling and friendly. The service time was adequate and we took the following:
Poutine with shredded chicken & green peas (Rating: 3.5/5)
Goat cheese croquettes with spicy honey, arugula (Rating: 5/5)
BBQ baby back ribs with coleslaw & crispy onions (Rating: 3.5/5)
Wild mushroom Cavatelli (Rating: 3/5)
Half-baked chocolate chip cookie dough with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (Rating: 4/5)
Cannoli with Ricotta & Nutella (Rating: 1/5)
Overall: Food was good not great nor average and the service was excellent.
We went to Briona - Hummus bar with a groupon that we paid 15$ for a 30$ value discounted on the bill. The waiters were friendly and professional. We were barely explained the menu and we decided to take as hummus Le Jerusalem (includes Falafel balls, tahini sauce and spicy sauce) and Le Genovese (includes ground beef, mushrooms, grilled peppers, pesto sauce and spicy sauce). We waited for at least 30-40 minutes before we got our plates and the place was 1/2 full. Both were just average nothing fancy. We were not satisfied with our 1st experience.
We were going to Laval so we decided to try something new in the area. We looked for a Greek restaurant and found Christinas cuisine. From the moment we entered we felt welcomed, the waiter asked us if it was our 1st time and then he started explaining to us the house specialties. The place has a nice Greeky ambiance which was very enjoyable. We tried the taramasalata (only letdown sadly), the Greek salad (very good), the pastitsio (delicious) and the moussaka (amazingly delicious). The service was fast as well as friendly and the prices were reasonable. Highly Recommended if you want a taste of Greece.
This was our first time at Le Mériodial restaurant. We bought a groupon voucher which included : an appetizer, a main dish and a dessert. We had booked our table but came 1 hour earlier; the hostess did not refuse us but she informed us that service might be a bit slower due to number of tables. For the appetizers, we have the feuilleté of mushrooms and the Meriodiale salad: both were delicious. For the main dishes, we had the chicken tajine and the couscous royal: again both were amazingly good. Last, for the desserts, we chose the crème caramel and the chocolate cake: both homemade and a delight. The service was friendly and professional; the prices were great. I highly recommended Le Mériodial if you are in Longueil.
Carlos & Pepes was a restaurant my wife suggested so we went for lunch. Once we arrived, there was no wait and we were seated instantly. Service was acceptable but nothing out of the ordinary. We ordered Chicken Quesadillas and Chicken Fajitas, both very good and enjoyable. The setting is amazing; you feel that you are on vacation down south with all those colors. The decor is attractive even the door bathrooms have an interesting design. Recommended for the food and the setting.
Ben & Florentine is mostly a breakfast place for those who are not aware. We were a party of 8 but i will review only our dishes (my wife and i). We took the 3 Omelettes - goat cheese (includes spinach and mushrooms) was good and i had the three musketeers (sausages rolled in crêpes covered with cheddar, served with fresh fruit and home fries) - was good too. The service was average (i had asked for water and they just forgot us).
Overall an ok place for food/price.
We wanted to try Mozza for some time now. The service was ok (a bit slow) eventhough the restaurant was not full on a friday evening. The waitress had always an eye on the tables including ours which was nice. We took as an entrée the Mozzarella Fritta (Not bad but nothing amazing to talk about). Then we had a family Wood-fried Salsiccia Pizza (Crumbled Italian sausage, mushrooms, caramelized onions, mozzarella) - and it was delicious.
Overall enjoyable - shame about slowness of service but the rest was a good experience.
When we arrived there were no tables free and we were put on a waiting list ;but , the wait was very short. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We ordered Burgers : Champignons burger and classic cheese bacon burger. Both were delicious, the coleslaw salad was dry, the red pickle was too sweet and the fries were good. The service was very quick but our only complaint is how noisy it was, you would think you were eating in a mall.
Kitchen 73 was very welcoming, we had booked for 5 but we were only 4 and they immediately seated us with no issues. Dominic the waiter was friendly and kept checking on us all the time. The food was delicious (not buttery or greasy) - everything was great from the eggs to the home made sausages. The fresh juices were good too. Prices are bit higher than other breakfast places but well worth it. Highly recommended!
Great place and staff. Friendly place and food is delicious
We wanted to try it and we were sadly disappointed. There were not too many people eating that night, service was slow. We Ordered Tre Fromaggi (not hot as it should be - 2.5/5) and the Americano Pizza (2/5). For us this place is a pass.
We wanted to go for Pizzas and sat outside. The Service was always friendly and attentive to our questions and needs. We tried the Pizza with shrimps from Matane and the All dressed with ham - Both were delicious.
Note : the medium pizza is enough for 2 if you take a salad.
One of those restaurants that i had on my to try list. The service was average and the food we ordered was average : we tried the MUSHROOM & ONION MANHATTAN 7 oz (Feature Cuts) and the Peppercorn New York 12 oz (Feature Cuts) - Both were ok.
Sadly overall average experience - the restaurant is over-hyped and expensive.
The burgers were good , i recommend getting the big fries instead of 2 small ones and the services was courteous and fast - would come again.
We have been to Mr Steer a few times before. That day we wanted to try the fish and the Susie Q fries. The service was average, the fish was very oily but the fries were great as always.
We went there around 6 pm on a Saturday, the service was decent. We had ordered baby back ribs with grilled chicken breast and Chicken with sautéed giant tiger shrimps - both were very good. Delightful overall and we would come back.
Once we entered we were seated almost directly.While ordering, the waitress got lost and re-asked what we wanted.I tried the three musketeers (consists of sausages rolled in crepes with cheddar on top served with fruits and home potatoes) which was very good and my wife took the chicken pesto with salad (the salad sauces were separate and you could choose what you wanted) which was also very good. Though the food is nice but the atmosphere is cold and you feel almost unwelcomed. 4 Stars for food and 2 for the services for the Ben and Florentine located on Mansfield street.
It is the 1st time we try this restaurant, we arrived and got seated immediately. There was no line but a bit after there was queue, there were empty bigger tables but the waiter(s) told the people that they had to wait for proper table size.
Another thing was that while we were choosing our order from menu 2 waiters brought food to our table yet we hadn't given our order yet.
1/2 of the menu can only be ordered at dinner and 1/2 at lunch.
Food was fresh and very good in general - some very oily items like tempura.
Service was good overall.
It is the 2nd time we visit and we took the all you can eat : tempura shrimps and lots of rolls : Avocado, crab, mango, cucumber, shrimps, chicken, etc...We tried the Chicken don, Chicken brochettes and Hand Rolls : Dragon eye, etc...
Overall food was good but service was very slow (could be improved).
The location is great (downtown Montreal).
It was the 1st time we try Baton Rouge in this area; we were seated almost instantly on a Sunday night. The waitress brought us water and came back a bit later to take our order. My wife had the Goat Cheese Sirloin (excellent) and I took the Crab Cake Sirloin (the meat was great but the crab cake was very oily). We had asked that both dishes were to be well cooked and we got what we asked for. The service was slow: it took around at least 30 minutes to get our dishes. Also, the waitress in our area was overwhelmed with work she was even serving on the bar at the same time while 2 others were just walking around. Overall very good food but service is ok.
We had done some beer tasting during a beer tour and decided to come back for lunch to the Saint Bock . The beers were great and the food we had was good (plain burger , burger with brie and onion rings). Sadly, the service was average and was slow.
We decided to try out Tapeo by booking online a table for our wedding anniversary. The good thing is that they actually do call you to confirm your reservation. After we got seated on a jam packed Wednesday night, Bobby (our waiter) made us feel at ease and welcomed. We tried 6 Tapas : Spanish Tortilla (very good), Octopus Salad (very Good),Patatas Bravas (good), Chorizo (good),Garlic Shrimps (excellent),and Cod fish friters (excellent). We also decided to try 2 different desserts: Mousse of Dattes and Creme Catalane (both are excellent). Overall excellent service and very good food at reasonable prices - Added to my favorite list.
This is the first time we try this restaurant , i reserved online and had no issues. Once seated, the waitress came and guided us through menu and suggested some beer sampling. We tried the Europe beer sampling which was 6 beers of 7oz each: Hoegaarden , Erdinger , Bass , Leffe Blonde , Delirium Temens , and Fruli. We took the Open-Faced Steak Sandwich (delicious according to my wife); i took the steak with fries which was cooked as requested and it was an absolute delight. Service was excellent and the live music was very enjoyable. Overall i would love to come again.
We took the tasting menu consisting of the following appetizers:
1-Kitfo : Filet mignon tartar with Ethiopian spices (Good)
2-Bouticha : Chick peas pureed with garlic and lemon + below it : Eggplant marinated and pureed (Good)
3-Yetimatim : Tomato salad with green chillies and Ginger (Average)
4-Veggies caramelized with Ethiopian spices (Good)
Then the main dish :
1-Bedergan : Zucchini in our special alicha sauce (Average)
2-Zilzil Tibbs : Filet mignon strips sauteed with ginger (Great)
3-Yatakelt watt : cabbage, potatoes and carrots sautéed (Average)
4-Yebeg Key Watt: Moist Lamb cooked in berbere sauce (Ok)
5-Gommen : Spinach with onion and garlic (Bad)
6-Doro Watt : Chicken with berbéré sauce (Ok)
For the price of 60$ for 2 persons on what was presented it is too pricey and the food overall was average. The appetizers and main dish both were served with Injera Bread (traditional Ethiopian bread).The service was also average (the waiter was in a hurry to explain the dishes presented) .There were neither plates nor cutlery given (only 2 spoons on the appetizers plate).
Overall Interesting but average experience
It took at least 10 minutes before someone came and took the order though there were not that many tables. My wife took the onion soup which was good but her tex-mex 3 mini burger plate was very dry and barely acceptable. As for me i took Provencal Grilled chicken with rice and veggies - was ok but nothing major. Sadly the waitress was arrogant , somewhat rude and forgetful (we had asked for a glass of water twice before getting it). Very disappointing - am sure never to come back to this location.
First time we try it , we took onion rings as appetizer (very good but no sauce). Then my wife took the famous reuban (Smoked meat , swiss cheese and saurkraut)was a bit better than the burger i had and i took the Classic Cheeseburger (the meat was not good sadly) the fries were just ok. The Service was very good - we got napkins fast without asking.
We went there for an office party(20+ People): the service was ok , the ambiance was cold but the food was very good and the price was great. I took table d'hote : Rouleau imperial + Grilled Beef and Chicken (both were very good) and decided to go with the fried banana with vanilla ice cream (was also nice).
Well it is a mexican fast food ....so you should expect amazing food or quality nevertheless - They give Nachos with sauces before the order . We took spit-roasted pork tacos , onions and pineapple (very nice) and the huarache with chicken which was ok.
We went for our anniversary to aux Cinq Parfums restaurant on a tuesday evening - there was just us .I was somewhat skeptical since i read many good reviews about the place before coming . Turns out we were not disappointed , the waiter was very nice (a bit shy but very polite) and the food was great .
We took the Vietnamese Combo for 2 : Soupe Tonkinoise au poulet (for starter), quatre rouleau de printemps au boeuf , crevettes grillées, Poulet au Satay , Légumes sautés et Riz a la vapeur.
The food was delicious apart maybe from the Vegetables plate (Légumes sautés) which was ok.
The quantities for 2 persons were more like for 3.
The only thing which would need attention is some plates were chipped . Besides that Highly recommended.
First time we went there - we were a group of 12 people on a friday night. The food is very diversified but not 100% Korean - you have sausages on the menu for instance .
It costs 24$ + tax + tip (the tip is auto added on the bill itself for 15% and before tax). If you take a beer with your food you should expect your bill to be about 40$.
That day the service was horrible :
1-the waiters were sometimes lost and many at the same time
2-Also some of the orders we asked for were missing items
3-many times we wanted something and there was no waiter near us
As for the food itself it is good but not great (you have fish , squid , sushi , pork , chicken , beef, etc....).
Note : Be sure to ask to change the grill from time to time and be sure to reserve prior to going.
Been there a few times and I love a dish that has grilled pork in it . Sadly the service we got on that day was so so - we didn't get any tea , the waiter got lost with drinks he brought us drinks from a different table order , he forgot to keep the spoons on the table .
In Any case who cares about the service if you have great food :)
We have been going to this restaurant for quiet some time . The food is very good and the service is ok . I would advise you to try the Homemade Flammekueches, they are very enjoyable.
Lack of Organization in reaching your table (but of course this was New Year's Eve) . Great Service from the waitress : fast and enjoyable . My Wife took the risotto which was great in the New Year's Menu and i sadly took the Carne - it was humongous. Food Overall is 4 stars.
We wanted to try something new so went to chez cora - having read a few reviews i was skeptical about the place. It turns out that food is quite enjoyable as well as the service. Each plate was satisfying - for instance i took the 7th of July which has: 2 crepes (a very thin pancake) + 1 cinnamon toast + tons of fruits . Of course there are better places for sure but for the price/quality this one is great.
We ordered pizzas : Cotto E Bocconcini , Salame and Capriciosa - all were good . The waiter was amazinly nice . Nice Restaurant - you can eat either outside and see all people walking by or inside . Best outside when you are in summer right ?
The restaurant is nice and situated on crescent . We recommend the garlic bread . And we tried the chicken Masala which was spicy but not much and we also tried the chicken Chettinad . Nice enjoyable dishes but the only thing is it is expensive compared to what you are given . Each Chicken dish has about 7-8 medium chicken piece for about 20$ a plate with no rice or anything - those you would need to order on the side
Overall : a nice experience
The restaurant has a great location in the old port montreal , there was a 30 min wait before getting an outdoor table . The food was good for me, i took the american pizza and also had taken an italian sausage as an entree on the other hand my wife took the crepe forrestiere which was very good but salty.
There is Live Jazz singing which was great but the place is noisy.
